Very thorough doctor. Cares about her patients and very knowledgeable
I'm glad I found Dr. Chand. She seemed genuinely concerned about my health issues and wanted to help me get better. Even though it's a little bit of a drive for me, I'm willing to ditch my current GI doctor and switch to Dr. Chand's practice. I feel confident she will help me get better and figure out what's my problem.
She was thorough, listened to me, and above all was honest with how we needed to proceed in order to make a difference and change in my life and health. I highly recommend this specialist to anyone that is ready, and willing to make the necessary changes that she deems important in order to be happier, and healthier.

Dr. Chand took the time to sit with me on my first visit (And every visit after) to really discuss what is wrong, and how best to treat symptoms as we work together (yes, I feel as if she is really on my side!) towards a difficult diagnosis. Her entire office staff is professional and very friendly.

Dr. Chand was excellent. I came to her for a second opinion for an ongoing GI condition. She was very thorough and had many ideas for solutions. She ordered a ton of tests, but I can understand why. I believe she can help me. I was also very impressed at how quickly she was able to see me and did not waste my time.
Dr. Nisha is awesome and life saver. I visited her once with digestive issue and she uncovered the issue right away and guided the proper treatment and I am feeling perfectly alright. She allows enough time to discuss with patients which is great.
She is an amazing doctor. She came in and actually wanted to fix my issue. She seemed concerned about my health and it didn't seem like she wanted to get me in and out.
After spending over a year with undiagnosed symptoms, and months of trying to see doctors, I was able to schedule an appt with Dr. Chand and I cannot thank her or her staff enough -- they are efficient, friendly, caring, and tireless in their pursuit to diagnose. Thank you!!
Very attentive, listened, not rushed, explained treatment well.

Exelente Medico los medicamentos que me receto me estan ayudando me siento muy bien ella hace un Buen Trabajo.
I had heard wonderful things about Dr. Chand before I saw her, and I was not only NOT disappointed, but blown away! She truly listened, and I felt I had her full attention. She was understanding, personable, and patient. I had several things to discuss with her, and she didn't rush me through them (causing me to remember what I had forgotten to tell her as soon as I got to my car). She is an over-an-hour drive for me, but I can't imagine seeing anyone else!
Dr. Chand is a life saver.
She was very thorough, even my very skeptical husband was impressed and he may switch Gastroenterologists based on him being there for my appointment.

I had very bad experience, Ben waiting for 15 min ahead of my appointment time to see the doctor, un professional!
Dr.Chand wad extremely pleasant. She took her time and made me feel like I mattered to her. She showed concern for my situation. I am very glad that I found her as I was hesitant while searching for a gastroenterologist. There are so many to choose from! I made a good choice; ) Thank you.
I read the reviews on ZocDoc and chose Dr. Chand because of the universally positive reviews. The reviews were spot on. Nisha was friendly, interested and focused on the medical issue. Very good experience. Thank you
Good doctor. Just wish the wait time wasn't almost an hour.
Dr. Chand was compassionate, straightforward and very professional. I immediately felt at ease when in her office. She took the time to listen to her patient and walked me through every step of the process. I am glad that she will be the one doing my procedure later this month. My only suggestion is to speed up the process of checking in and out. That is a comment for her office staff and not the doctor herself.
Dr. Chand is very knowledgeable, she is also thorough and process every piece of information.

She was very professional, but very easy to talk to. She made sure to really listen when I would respond to her questions.
Dr. Chand has a pleasant bedside manner and is very thorough in her questioning trying to ensure she gets to the source of your concern. She made me comfortable enough to discuss my concerns thoroughly. The office environment is calm and peaceful. Unfortunately her assistant was experiencing some problems with ZocDoc when I arrived for my appointment so I had to complete paperwork when I arrived, which is why I was delayed in being seen right away.
Very good and helpful
She is very nice. She listened to everything I had to say and clearly described the answers to any questions I had.
Muy buena atenta amable y muy profesional
Una Doctora muy profesinal y preocupada por sus pacientes
All I expected of this visit was a brief chat, the procedure prep instructions, and a bunch of forms, but Dr. Chand started asking all these QUESTIONS and made me realize I have some real GI problems I've tended to blow off and self-treat with OTC meds. She caught a med conflict that many others have overlooked, prescribed something stronger for a known condition, and signed me up for a second procedure that she'll do at the same time as the one I was expecting to get to the bottom of my various but sporadic symptoms. She's also very engaging and reassuring. I feel in good hands.
Very professional, took her time, and listened! Also recommended against costly and unnecessary procedures / drugs. I'd give her six stars out of five!
Personable and knowledgeable doctor.
Dr. Chand was thorough and determined to resolve my illness.
She was professional and very nice, but didn't provide clear instructions for next steps. Make sure you ask her exactly what you need to do.
Dr. Chand was phenomenal. She made sure to review my chart and asked me a lot of questions. She even pointed out some concerns with things she wanted me to follow up with my primary care doctor that he didn't even discuss with me. She was very thorough and made absolute certain that there would be no drug interactions with the prescription she wrote. Even though I'm moving, I will make the drive out to see her again, no matter how far!
Dr. Chand was fantastic. She listens and she truly cares. I would highly recommend her.
The overall experience was so positive and comforting from the time I walked in to the office. the front desk staff was courteous and kind, I was called back to a room within seconds for my appointment and the medical assistant was very friendly and professional. Dr. Chand spent an extensive amount of time with me problem- solving and creating a medical game plan without me ever feeling like she was in a hurry. This is a trait not often found in doctors.
Dr. Chand is wonderful. She listens to all concerns and addresses all of them in a pleasant manner. I always feel welcomed and my appointments are never rushed, like other health care professionals who treat you like cattle. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Chand, Was very professional and personable. Took the time to listen and then gave thoughtful insights, diagnosis and took the time to answer your questions.
